This is a vintage Maru obi
with wave and flying crane pattern, which is woven.
Gold foil threads woven in the pattern are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The otaiko pattern is set upside down, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
Threads of the pattern are frayed and missing in many parts.
It has some other flaws such as loosen stitches of the edge and folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its retro vintage design!
